There’s a rumor going around the high-end brokerage community today that Linda Stein’s ex-assistant Raoul Garcia Bernal is in custody. Mr. Bernal, described in the papers this morning as a “handsome Romeo type” known as The Cuban, reportedly fell out with Stein before her murder.
A source from the NYPD tells The Observer that no arrests have been made: “If he’s being questioned, if he’s being looked at closely? I don’t know. But arrested or in custody–that’s simply not true.”
